Playing with the XrmToolbox version (Beta 184.108.40.206).
Small UX tweak, would be nice if the ribbon workbench had a "close tab" button in its own ribbon (within the XrmToolBox).
Thanks for the suggestion!
You can use Tabs→Close Current Tab
Since the RWB has the same UI in both the installable solution and the XrmToolbox I’d rather not do add a button in one and not the other.

This is particularly a problem since it is not possible to change the connection on an existing RibbonWorkbench tab.
